Customs established a port of entry of Gramercy, Louisiana, by a final rule document published as Treasury Decision (T.D.) 82-93 in the Federal Register (47 FR 21039) on May 17, 1982. A description of the port of entry was set forth in the document.
On May 31, 1984, Customs published in the Federal Register (49 FR 22629) T.D. 84-126, a final rule document setting forth the port limits of all the ports in the then New Orleans Customs district. One of the ports, of which the boundaries were described, was Gramercy, Louisiana. The document extended the limits of the Gramercy port from those set forth in T. D. 82-93.
In a document published in the Federal Register (49 FR 27142) on July 2, 1984, Customs delayed the effective date of T.D. 84-126 regarding the extension of the port boundaries of Gramercy. This document stated that “[t]he listing for Gramercy shall remain as set forth in section 101.3(b), Customs Regulations,” meaning that the description of the Gramercy port would continue to be as set forth in T.D. 82-93.
The Customs Regulations correctly reflected that the port limits of Gramercy were as set forth in T.D. 82-93 until T.D. 95-77 was published in the Federal Register (60 FR 50008) on September 27, 1995. In that document, which included a revision of section 101.3 to reflect the reorganization of Customs, the reference to T.D. 84-126 was inadvertently inserted in the “Limits of port “ column next to the listing of the port of entry of Gramercy under the State of Louisiana.
This document corrects the error by removing the reference “(Restated in T.D. 84-126)” in the “Limits of port” column adjacent to the entry of Gramercy in the “Ports of entry column” under the State of Louisiana in section 101.3(b), Customs Regulations.
